Glory Be - NPR's Backseat Book Club Pick for July

If you enjoyed The Liberation of Gabriel King or The Lions of Little Rock, then you may want to read Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood.  Click on the book title to read NPR's review and an excerpt from the book.  I've had this book on my WTR (want to read) list for some time.   So now it goes on my MRTS (must read this summer) list.  If you read it, be sure to email me, and I'll post your comments here.
If you're interested in seeing other books chosen by the NPR (National Public Radio) Backseat Book Club, here's their complete list.  You're sure to recognize a title or two and perhaps even discover something new to read this summer.
Happy reading!

Books Read in June

Try to read at least three books during the summer - one in June, one in July, and one in August.  Post the book title, author, and your rating.  You might also want to include the genre.  Feel free to share your thoughts about the book, but remember you don't have to post a lengthy review.   You might choose to use a star rating system of 1 - 5 stars, with 5 stars being the best book you've ever read, and 1 star indicating that you didn't like the book.
